I spontaneously made a decision yesterday to just go and ride Route 555 that starts in Zanesville and ends in W. Virginia. The weather was nice, no humidity and no chance of rain so it was a fantastic day to take a long trip. Normally, it only takes about 2hrs and 20 mins to get to the start of Route 555 but I relied on my GPS that ended up sending me on a long around the way trip that took me 3.5 hours! Anyways, so I get on the triple nickel and I must says that road is super fun but it will wear you out with twisties because the road is 1.5 hours long! I rode it both ways so it took me 3 hours! I never thought I would get tired of twisties, hills, blind drop-offs, sharp turns, winding turns, etc…..BUT I grew tired of so much action for so long, especially after I rode 5 hours already. The only thing that keeps this road from being great is the gravel spots which almost wiped me out a couple of times, luckily I have a great sense of balance. I will have a video of the experience up soon with some action shots. Until then I will leave you with some pictures.
Btw, today I rode 500 miles in one day and 11hrs and 40 minutes of non-stop riding, except for gas stops and a break to adjust my GoPro camera. That is my personal best.
